Event Result


At Forestdale, we firmly believe in the importance of extending learning beyond the classroom, enriching pupils’ experiences and providing them with extensive opportunities to discover talents and interests.

We are proud of our dynamic curriculum and our efforts to bring learning to life through trips and visits. We also offer a wide range of clubs and activities beyond the school day to enrich pupils’ time with us. There are sports clubs such as Football, Netball and Table tennis.

Spring 2017 clubs start week beginning 16th January

After school clubs run by the school cost £15 per term. Lunchtime and after school clubs are all booked through ParentPay.

Our Sports Stars

Last term parents were invited to provide details of their child’s out of school sports activities. We now have a board in the Junior building showing examples of children’s achievements in swimming, dance, karate, etc. Well done to all the children who are featured and who take part in sporting activities out of school.

School Houses

At Forestdale Primary School we operate a House system. Children are allocated to one of five houses when they start school, or if they join later. Siblings are in the same House. We aim to keep the number of children equal in each house. The five houses and their colours are:

The House system creates healthy competition, promotes good work and behaviour, encourages teamwork, provides opportunities to take on responsibilities and brings everyone in the school together. This is especially apparent at our annual Sports Morning when children compete in houses rather as individuals. Children may wear t-shirts in their house colours for PE lessons and at the Sports Morning.
